We are staying in the hotel adjoining the restaurant and went down for a beer. They offer a ten percent discount when you show your room key. My son ordered the chili and I ordered the onion soup. We were so hungry that we ate both soups but they were not good at all. Our server, Christina, was excellent. I... More

Mediocre service, oily food and the rest of the standard thing in a bar food. Place was half empty but the service was still spotty. Not all good was horrible but the overall experience was sub par.

We have been going to BBC on 9 in Framingham for years now. In general it is same, but slipping. Seems like a carousel of staff, never see same face twice. Staff is friendly and helpful, no issues with them. Food has slipped a bit. Portions smaller, variety shrinking, just not a 'must stop' like I would've said a few... More

Many good food options: ribs, pizza, burgers, meat loaf, etc. Our favorites are the steak and gorgonzola salad and the New England Pastie (turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce and gravy turnover with mashed potatoes and veggies). My favorite White Zinfandel (Copper Ridge) which I now order by the case. As a Liverpool football fan, I enjoy their embrace of European football... More

Went in for dinner on a Thursday afternoon and can't say enough wonderful things! The meal was delicious and my waitress, Olivia, was phenomenal. The Manager, Matt, took time to come over and chat with us and make sure that everything was as we hoped. Exceptional Experience!

They have a good local beer collection, the wait staff is friendly and will make recommendations. The entree portions are pretty large, though they are not exactly cheap. Unfortunately the food quality isn't always top-notch - we've had some fantastic stuff and some not-so-great stuff. The pizzas are definitely good, though.

Okay, this is not authentic modern British pub food--no curries, for example. However, this is a reasonable restaurant for comfort food. Be aware that the soups/chilis are large; for many, a cup is adequate. I had the stout onion cheese soup; it was quite good. The meatloaf was good as were the vegetables (Brussels sprouts and carrots) but the cheesy... More

A small group of 20 or so gathered for food and drinks before a high school reunion. The restaurant set aside a nice area for us and provided a very attentive and experienced server. Over the course of four hours or so the room, food, drinks and service were all first class. I'd definitely recommend this location for a meal... More
